The Better Pizza: Pepe's (CT) vs DiFara's (NYC)
Posted 01 May 2012 - 07:07 AM
I have not been to DiFara's and only know about it as recently on Test Kichen, Kimball went there to taste NYC thin crust and raved about it. K is a tricky guy.
So if you have been to both, what do you think? been to one? the other?
my view is that Pepe's cant be beat and does not even get close to other 'fine' parlors ive been to:
White Clam pizza, and Bacon pizza I die for. Pepe's

And wouldn't you have to compare Pepe's with NYC coal-oven pizza for an accurate comparison?

Its true the wood-coal-oven makes a huge difference if not too smokey. I and i guess Pepe's has expanded to several other CT spots.
Pizza is like the Perfect Cup: the same taster can tell the difference one to the other.

and at Pepe's it would have to be the same pizza.
